As part of the Rebuilding in Faith and Hope initiative already underway, Bishop Edgar M. da Cunha, S.D.V. is inviting lay and clergy leaders from across the Fall River Diocese to serve as a member of a Planning Commission whose task will be to imagine and develop diocesan services and ministries that can better support our parishes.

THREE planning commissions will be established: CATHOLIC SOCIAL SERVICES COMMISSION, YOUTH AND YOUNG ADULT COMMISSION, and DIOCESAN / CHANCERY GOVERNANCE COMMISSION (which will break into subcommittees). Each person is asked to select one commission to serve on; below you will be able to enter a FIRST and SECOND choice.

1. CATHOLIC SOCIAL SERVICES COMMISSION will plan for significant growth and re-branding. They will galvanize their mission, vision, and goals, and create an operational plan for CSS that includes ways to partner with our parishes and schools. We can better serve the poor and marginalized of our society if we work together and not in parish or ministry silos.

2. YOUTH & YOUNG ADULT COMMISSION will develop inspirational programming and recruit new leadership for the formation and evangelization of our "Generation Y" Millennials (born between 1980-1994, ages 24-38) and our "Generation Z" (born between 1995-2012, ages 6-23).

3. DIOCESAN / CHANCERY GOVERNANCE COMMISSION will evaluate the current operations and effectiveness of our chancery offices and ministries, and determine new ways to better serve our parishes.

This Commission will have four subcommittees:
- Communications
- Human Resources
- Finances
- Property and Real Estate
